White flowers

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 17:14

I have just bought a Choisya sundance, thats white evergreen and likes shade, and cost 1.30, needs potting up but will be good next year.

my garden is like an explosion in the paint factory, if it grows for me, it stays. Any colours, I just love them all.





Wish list for seed and plant swap

And I have a fuchsia pink colour almost bordering on purple.

SGL you need to keep a close eye on foxglove seeds now, one day they are greenish, next day popped.

Pull the whole pod carefully off the plant and open it over a sheet of paper, its like dust.

I dont know if android and ipad are similar, but i can click on the star in the main search box then select to save as bookmarks. I have tried it and it works on tablet.

I cant wait for my ipad to arrive.

They are going to a good home Bekkie, the first 2 you sent are lovely little plants, you would think they had been in for ages.

Dont worry about not marking them, I dont mind and I can always shuffle around next year.

You coud dig a trench around what you want to keep and put plastic sheeting down to stop the roots travelling.

A lot of sites do a lot of faffing about, all I did was hooked them out washed them off dried them on kitchen paper and as it was March, put them straight in a pot, 

For next year, just leave them on the window sill to dry and store in a paper envelope. Everything simple and easy for me.

I sowed 4 and they all germinated, they are lovely little cherry ones, straight from the supermarket.

Bekkie, do you make a little nick in the stems when layering plants?

Quick update:

I didnt get emails from bekkie or Stargaze, also didnt get rosemary cuttings from kitchen gardener. That could be my end tho, android is a bit hit and miss!

If I have fogotton anyone, please let me know.
